Gigaslash is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series. Despite its name suggesting a physical basis for its (very large) damage output, it in fact deals magical damage. It slices a group of enemies with a blade of holy electricity.

The hero can learn Gigaslash as a sword-only technique after fully investing 100 skill points into either the "Sword" or "Courage" skills. If both skill are at maximum, he obtains Gigagash instead. The electrified slice targets one enemy group for 20 MP, and damage is calculated as lvl+180 +/- [20+lvl].
